MANILA, Mar 14 (Mabuhay) — Malacañang on Thursday said the Philippines will continue to “seek all opportunities to help build a climate of mutual trust and cooperation” with the People’s Republic of China following the formal assumption of Xi Jinping as its new president.

In a statement extending its ‘sincere congratulations’ to the newly-installed Chinese leader, Presidential Spokesman Edwin Lacierda expressed that the Philippines is in one with the people of China in welcoming Xi’s presidency.

“The People’s Republic of China views this as an auspicious moment as they work towards their prosperity and stability. This is a sentiment shared by all peoples of good will, who look forward to opportunities for positive engagement fortified by trust, good will, and cooperation, for the mutual benefit of all peoples in our region and around the world,” Lacierda said.

Xi assumed the presidency after getting majority of the votes in the 18th National People’s Congress, held Thursday in Beijing, and his election as General Secretary of the CPC Central Committee and Chairman of the CPC Central Military Commission.

“We will seek all opportunities to help build a climate of mutual trust and cooperation to enhance stability in our region so that the positive economic momentum of our respective nations may be sustained,” Lacierda concluded. (MNS)
